The Atlanta FaZe strengthened their grip on first place with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Paris Legion on Saturday in the Call of Duty League.

The FaZe improved to 5-0, moving ahead of the 4-0 Los Angeles Thieves, who were idle Saturday.

In other action, the Minnesota Rokkr swept their way past London Royal Ravens 3-0 and the Los Angeles Guerrillas clipped the Toronto Ultra 3-2.

The Call of Duty League has tabbed its current slate as Super Week, a restructured schedule of play in the wake of severe winter weather across much of the United States.

Stage I, Week 2 matches that had been scheduled for last Thursday through Sunday were moved to this week. Instead, the 20 matches from Weeks 2 and 3 are now part of Super Week, which began Monday and will run through next weekend.

The matches from Super Week will impact teams' seedings in the Major I Tournament, which is scheduled to start March 3.

FaZe dropped two of the first three rounds to Paris Legion, sandwiching a 6-5 win on Checkmate SND with losses on Checkmate Hardpoint (250-249) and Garrison Control (3-1). FaZe then won the last two rounds, 250-218 on Raid Hardpoint and 6-4 on Raid SND.

The Rokkr had no such drama with the Ravens, winning 250-157 on Raid Hardpoint, 6-4 on Moscow SND and 3-2 on Raid Control.

The Guerrillas rallied from a round down to defeat Ultra, who took the opener 250-242 on Crossroads Hardpoint. The Guerrillas took the next two - 6-1 on Moscow SND, 3-1 on Raid Control - before Ultra knotted the affair at 2 all with a 250-199 win on Garrison Hardpoint. But LA took Raid SND 6-1 to seal the win.
